Hear it From Them

It’s important to come out of the ivory towers and into the community, touching people where they live and work. Bringing people into a setting like this and having them teach one another helps to engender trust in the community,

The ITM’s Community Grand Rounds (CGR)  connects South Side residents with UChicago officials and the latest research on the topics that impact their health the most, and in 2015 alone more than 400 people attended dynamic sessions addressing topics like domestic violence, mental health, and obesity prevention.

“It’s important to come out of the ivory towers and into the community, touching people where they live and work,” said Doriane Miller, MD, Associate Professor of Medicine, who leads the CGR program.

Miller and her ITM colleagues launched CGR in 2010, and since then it has touched more than 2,500 people, creating a bridge between health care and the community by taking research and translating it into education that can improve people’s lives.

Sessions are held four times each year between September and June. The next event will take place April 22. Register here.
